I checked at http://java.sun.com/
website, and came along with this ...
"Get the Java SE 6 Update 12 Now!
Highlights include the highly anticipated 64-bit Java Plug-In (for 64-bit browsers only), Windows Server 2008 support, and performance improvements of Java and JavaFX applications.
Download the update"
Well, I downloaded the update, and installed jre at /opt/java directory.
I noticed that in /opt/java/jre1.6.0_12/lib/amd64 directory there are a number of *.so files like libjava.so ,libjavaplugin_jni.so ,libjawt.so ...e.t.c
I also noticed that in /opt/java/jre1.6.0_12/plugin/desktop directory there are two files: sun_java.desktop and sun_java.png. What to do with them ?
I made a S-link pointing to the 3 above *.so files in my /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins directory (where there is also my flashplayer plugin) but I could not make my iceweasel to load any java plugin at startup.
What am I doing wrong ?
PS: I have Debian/Lenny AMD64 distro and I can't use any 32bit java plugin also, with my iceweasel.
